HO HO HO: Tommy Hilfiger will be honored for his commitment to increasing awareness and support of the autism community at “A Funny Affair for Autism,” that takes place Dec. 5 at The Plaza hotel. The evening, which includes a cocktail reception and dinner, will feature the comedic talents of “Saturday Night Live” stars Seth Myers and Bill Hader. There will also be an auction of one-of-a-kind menorahs designed and autographed by such celebrities as Adam Sandler and Jonathan Adler, and Christmas trees decorated by Martha Stewart, Hilfiger, “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and Godiva. Dee Hilfiger is the evening’s honorary chairwoman and all proceeds benefit Autism Speaks, whose co-founders are Suzanne and Bob Wright, and the New York Center for Autism, co-founded by Laura and Harry Slatkin.
